Iran Calls on Russia, US to Accept Nuclear Deal
26 May 2010
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called on Russia and the United States to accept a nuclear fuel swap deal, warning that it will be the last chance to resolve the nuclear stand off…
New British Prime Minister David Cameron told parliament Tuesday that he believes it is time to increase the pressure on Iran. He said his government has “a clear objective to ensure stronger U.N. and EU sanctions against Iran.”
The U.S., China and Britain are three of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council. All five approved a draft resolution for a fourth round of sanctions on Iran for its nuclear program.
Russia normally does not take too kindly to slams. If Iran keeps trying to be difficult on the international scene, it will likely be neutralized (and probably by Israel).
Contrary to the claims of some groups like Gerald Flurry’s PCG, Iran is NOT the King of the South (but it is likely to provide support to that upcoming power). Iran may wish to recall that the tough talk by Iraq’s Saddam Hussein resulted in his regime being changed (and him hung).
